Finally! Adding a little Fall Decor!

Hi everyone!

I finally got started on some Autumn decorating! Woohoo!

I grabbed some supplies before we headed to the cabin and made a ...umm...well I guess you call it a floral ring but, I am thinking of it as a cloche stand. I figure that I made it, so I get to call it whatever I want. LOL

This is, of course, super easy to do and pretty cheap. I think everything cost about $3.00. But, most of my supplies were from leftovers from last Fall.

This is what I started with. I didn't use everything.



Just cut off the heads of the flowers (leaving a little stem) and start pushing into the foam. I like to leave the plastic on the foam ring. It cuts down on green foam crumbles everywhere. You may need a little pair of scissors to punch a hole through the plastic.




Once the flowers are all in, I started filling with the little berry stems.



Now I have all the leaves that were on the floral stems left. These are great "fillers". I also have all the bare stems so, I snip them into small lengths and thread them through the leaves. Yup, I prefer not to waste anything if possible!





Just keep filling it in.



Okay, time to put it together on my side table. I have a perfect orange salad plate to put on top of the ring. I filled in small areas with little shimmery leaves. You will end up "fluffing" this several times as you see small open spots. I added some of the leaves on the plate.




Then I went out to our compost bin to pick a white pumpkin gourd. We were surprised to see these growing but, we have about 10 of them in there!





I added the white pumpkin and some of these cute acrylic acorns I found at the Dollar Tree.




I have a lot of glass cheese domes I have picked up thrifting. I decided to use the one with the little wooden knob on top. The wood just adds more warmth.




This little side table looked like this when I started.



Here it is all feathered for Fall.




I reused my little wire bird cage. I put my favorite cross inside. The red and amber colors fit in nicely. I placed it on a Fall leaf plate with a few leaves.




I love this old lamp that I got last year sometime. All the electrical guts were removed and I use it as a candle holder. The old iron and amber glass just looks perfect for Autumn.






And everything started on a pretty Fall dish towel from the Dollar Store.



Don't forget about.....

  13. It was fun to see the progress as you put your fall design together. I am keeping my eyes open for a cloche/cheese dome or two. I do have one now and it is so fun to decorate. I am off to do that now. Thanks for the inspiration.

  16. OMG, I am so jealous! First of all, I cannot find a white pumpkin anywhere around here where I live...and second, to be able to grow it in your backyard! I love what you've done with it. Stopping by from SOYCM.

  31. Hi Diann! My goodness, your table top arrangement looks so classy and beautiful. I just love how you put that entire cloche display together. It's gorgeous. I wonder if I have enough time to put a couple of those together for the wedding and put some of our deserts under the class.

    Those acrylic acorns are adorable, too.

    Hope you are well... and Happy Belated Birthday!!!
